So, I just moved to Vacaville from Pennsylvania for work and personal reasons...AND I DONT KNOW ANYONE >_<

however..I'm looking for anyone whose willing to chat and or eventually hang out and watch anime...or talk anime...or really anything else in general..art..literature..cars..computers.

Gah, I dunno..I've been here for about a month..maybe I've made a few friends, but lets just say things are very different in CA than PA..and well..I'm looking for some awesome people that aren't going to always put me in very strange situations...I'll explain if you'd like to know.

Anyway. Feel free to reply...I'm going to be at the con..and it'd be great if I could at least know someone before I get there...::sigh:: I miss otakon....but I have a feeling that this con will be even better and I can't wait....its been a long time.

feel free to catch me on aim as codenameanomaly

^_^ see ya

Hey there! Moving sucks man, especially to another state, but ah well. You couldn't have landed in a more... er...weird(er?) place. But yeah, we're pretty frakkin' liberal here, lotta hippies and stuff but hey, it's a lovable (sorta) place. *puts on Ahnold accent*

 ;D lol I keep thinking how odd it is that the terminator is here..

Haha, hey I updated my profile with some info..my deviantart page etc..

but yea..seriously...I really like it here aside from the lack of friends...that'll change I think though, 6 years of technical support has kind of turned me into a people person...I currently work in napa for McAfee Hackersafe

but hey..is there anything to do out here other than go to bars?  I've getting bored...to so bored that I started to write a cyberpunk novel...and I'm no writer....I really can't wait for the con its going to be awesome...I can't wait to meet everyone..I'm really really really looking forward to it.

There's plenty PLENTY of places in the Bay Area if you know where you're going. Since you live in Vacaville... uhh, lessee. What kinda stuff are ya into? Huh, first place I'd suggest is the city centre of San Francisco. Hella typical and tourist-y, but it's a major taste of what's to offer. The environment changes between each city, too. Like...half an hour from Oakland is Pleasanton, and each is SO different it's almost mind boggling. I figure the best way to get a feel of a new area is just getting lost. XD Mind you, get lost with a GPS so you could at least get back home without burning too big of a hole in your wallet from gas prices. o_o

Edit ~ I realize that that post was rambly and didn't make much sense. Sorry. Lawl

that being said...yea...I'm glad to be talking to people in cali...even if you guys/girls do tend to say hella quite often hehe... Us philly folk aren't exactly up on the lingo..

I'll be heading up to Davis this incoming weekend to go see some friends of mine. I live south of here, so about an hours drive from Vacaville. Most of the people that post here live in the san jose area, with everyone else scattered. Come join us for gatherings and stuff. There was a gathering planned for the speed racer movie this weekend, but it looks like it's not happening. Anyway, just aim or pm us and maybe we can get something going. Welcome to the bay area btw. I'm not a bar person, but I like to drink lol

Wow. Vacaville. I'm sorry.

I used to live up in Benicia (further down 680 from you) till about a year ago. I now live down in San Jose, but I can still tell you this; there is nothing to do up there.

I was just in benicia the other night at about 4am...some random girl was ditched on her 25th birthday in walnut creek. :(...I gave her a ride home....I didn't realize that benicia was so far out of the way...ohwell..Im glad she got home safe and wasn't raped or anything...that being said...vacaville isn't all that bad...some little bars here and there, but davis seems to be the busier of the areas...I dunno..I work in napa, and napa is to expensive to live, so I'm kinda stuck...either way, its better than philly...and a crap load cheaper too...alright i need to sleep I have work at 8 and my drive is about an hour with traffic hahahaha

gnight ^_^

Davis is in the middle of nowhere...just like the rest of those places up there.

You could go to six flags or something.

OH EM GEE, SIX FLAGS TRIP!

San Jose and San Francisco ftw.

welcome to the boards.

if you could afford it, keep randomly posting here in the gatherings threads.

some of us are road warriors and dont mind driving for gatherings or hang outs. with the summer around the standard on our boards is:

Mall hangouts
Movie hangouts
Random house parties *cough*
Random events listed in the gatherings section

or of course you could go this thing called fanime in about 17 days...
I think its called Fanime?

See ya there.  :P
